   SingleLineTracerPrintWriter overrides the println function in
   TracerPrintWriter by replacing the TAB character with spaces.
   It also does not print the "\n".

The default format generated by TracerPrintWriter for exceptions prints on multiple lines, which does not interact well with some logging systems. On the other hand, a stack-trace on one line can be a mite difficult to read, so this class should only be used where really necessary :-)

For syslog daemons, tabs in messages are not friendly, hence the replacement of tabs by spaces here. It shouldn't do any harm to do this for all messages...

Perhaps it might be better to enhance TracerPrintWriter to have a configuration item for one-line or multi-line mode... */ public class SingleLineTracerPrintWriter extends TracerPrintWriter { static String TAB = " "; public SingleLineTracerPrintWriter(QuietWriter qWriter) { super(qWriter); } /** Make the first Exception line print properly by omitting the \n at the end. */ public void println(Object o) { this.qWriter.write(o.toString()); } // Note: the Char[] form is handled by the TracerPrinterWriter super // class /** Remove the first character from the string (usually a TAB) and do not print "\n" */ public void println(String s) { // remove '^I' and replace it with 4 spaces this.qWriter.write(TAB+s.substring(1)); } }
